Icon / splash screen for Android


#1

Is there anything special that needs to be done to enable a custom splash screen / icon for Android?
I’ve edited all of the icons and splash screens in www/res/icon/android/ and www/res/screen/android/ but they are still not showing up when I use cordova run android

Any help is appreciated, thanks

Hey,
did you create the specific dirs like drawable-port-ldpi

take a look at http://docs.phonegap.com/en/3.3.0/config_ref_images.md.html#Icons%20and%20Splash%20Screens
for mor information.

Hi neilff,

I am also looking for solution for icon and splash for my app (demo : http://www.eddytools.com/demo/assessment-quiz/mobile-screen.php).
I am using Adobe phonegap builder (https://build.phonegap.com/) and i tried to update config.xml before build but it is taking default icon of cordova.

please update if u get any solution.

Best Regards

For App icon, don’t forget to specify it inside the AndroidManifest file.
Example

<application android:debuggable="true" android:hardwareAccelerated="true" android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher" android:label="@string/app_name">

Where ic_launcher is the name of the icon image file copied to different drawable folders.

Sat’s post fixed the issue for me, thanks

Do according to the instructions http://docs.phonegap.com/en/3.4.0/config_ref_images.md.html#Icons%20and%20Splash%20Screens but splash screen does not appear.
Where to write the name of the application that will be displayed under the icon in the menu?

in your www/ folder there is a config.xml with the infos of the app. Here you can change the title or description etc.

How to Add Icons to Your Ionic Framework Apps

I used this:
http://learn.ionicframework.com/formulas/adding-an-icon/
and worked perfectly for me.

http://ionicframework.com/blog/automating-icons-and-splash-screens/
worked for me.

A little late in this discussion, but thought it worth mentioning that for PhoneGap Build, a different set of entries in your config.xml is required (does anyone know why this is not standardized?):
